    The 1680 x 1050 resolution isn't that amazing, but design is pretty cool.

    It is a beautiful display...I got it for christmas when best buy was sold out of the westinghouse 22 inchers. I do wish that the resolution was a little higher, or that it would offer more inputs other than DVI and VGA...but...all in all, the thing is amazing, and huge. The base has all kinds of cool stuff, from the card reader to the usb hub to the ipod dock, the whole thing just works really really well.

    I looked at one at the local Costco and seemed to be a bit flimsy, but the options are sweet. I wish it was a little more stable.

    Personally I wouldn't buy it, but for a lot of people it would be nice, and there is a 19" version I believe.

    I was about to get myself one of ViewSonic LCD at a local store, but in the end I'm glad I didn't. One was the look that doesnt look very good, and 2nd is I hate ViewSonic monitor! Back then I thought their monitor is good since they in business for a long time and claim to be leader in monitor. Well I own 4 CRT ViewSonic monitor and all of them have gone bad after 2 - 3 years except 1 that seam to be working fine.

    1st one: Turning on brightness too high will result in screen flickering.

    2nd one: Totally blurry after using it for awhile.

    3rd one: Same crap, texts and everything become blurry.


    And one thing I don't get is why some monitor company such as ViewSonic put built-in speaker in their LCD. It look very ugly and unpleasent, and no one use those built in speaker anyway.

    I think that with an extra inch on each of them, with decent resolutions (20" at 1680x1050, 23" at 1920x1200, just like the Apple displays) they'd be irresistible. As it stands...not enough real estate for the space they take up.
